Shock-what? Shock-huh? That’s been the usual response from Mac users when asked about Shockwave – until now.
1999.10: If you’ve ever ordered a pizza with someone, you’ve experienced it. No two people ever want the same thing. I guess this is the same when ordering a computer. Now people can finally have the computer that’s suited to them – last week, Apple introduced it’s new iMacs. These are the new iMacs that […]
1999.10: An old saying goes, “If it’s free, it probably is too good to be true.” After a few months of using Mac OS 8.6, Apple’s new, free upgrade to the Mac’s operating system, I believe that this saying is holding true.
1999: “All you get is 32 megs of RAM? Only a 6 gigabyte hard drive? But I want more!” you say when you order your iMac.
1999: Everything the iMac has is big: The hard drive is big. The monitor is big. The speakers are . . . small.
1999: Many people want compatibility with the Windows world without being forced to give up the ease and all around greatness of the Macintosh. Enter Connectix Virtual PC. This little wonder of a program lets you run Windows and Windows programs on your Mac.
1999: No, it’s not because it’s easy to use. Nope, it’s not because of it’s stability. Nope, not that either. The real reason Windows is so popular is that there are so many computers that support it.
1999: Computers were designed to make our lives easier, right? So why do they make our lives harder? Every day you need to do so many things just to get a few emails. How exactly is this easier?
1999 – Many people have tried to copy Apple’s idea of a cool translucent plastic space age looking computer. Well, now Apple’s done it themselves. Enter the iBook.
1999 – A new age of Macintosh computing is among us. For many years, the Mac has just been waiting to defeat the Windows-based box as the computer of choice. Apple now has a chance.
1999.07.07 – They say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, but I’m sure Apple isn’t flattered.
1999 – When the iMac first came out, you either loved it or you hated it. Most of the people who loved it, loved it because of its all-in-one case design, low price, good software, and really cool color. Most of the people who hated it, hated it for two reasons: It’s a Mac, and […]
1999 – You have an iMac, you have a PowerBook, and you have a few ways to connect them (see Part 1) – but none of them seem fast enough or cheap enough, so you want more options. Never fear, there are plenty more ways to connect Macs.
1999 – Many iMac users want to be able to do their work on the road, but we have come to the painful realization that it is quite hard to put your iMac on your lap during an airplane ride. So many of us have bought a PowerBook to be able to compute on the […]
1999 – “Woah, it’s so perfect – I can’t wait to turn it on again!” I say. “This new iMac is so great!’
1999 – They say imitation is the biggest form of flattery. Well, Apple, I hope you’re flattered. Lately I’ve seen many iMac iMitations. From a real computer that had the same colors as the iMac to the iToaster, iToilet, and chiaMac.
1999 – You yell as your iMac running Mac OS 8.5 crashes again. You’re getting tired of your iMac crashing many times a day. You also think the only way to stop it is to throw it out the window – but there is another solution.
1999 – Lately, many people have been telling me that their iMacs have been giving them many problems. They’ve been reporting crashes, freezes, and other various maladies. I’ve been able to relate to these people, since my own iMac (which I renamed “the useless green lump” – until I fixed it.) was crashing too, for […]
1999 – Lately, many people have been saying to me, “Ha! You have a Mac! Macs are dead!” Well, I don’t think they are. The Mac might’ve been a bit unconscious for a while, but it most definitely isn’t now.
“Computer, tell me a joke!” you say – and nothing happens. Why? Because you didn’t install the Speech Recognition software correctly.
1999 – It happens to the best of us, and it will probably happen to you eventually. Yep, it’s the one thing we all say won’t happen, but always does – a hard drive failure. I’ll show you how to safeguard your iMac from disaster, and, aside from some sort of disk drive, it won’t […]
1999 – Like any other computer, the iMac, has it’s occasional problem. I’m not talking about a problem like, “Oh no, I got lime, but I wanted grape” or “Where’s the serial port?” I’m talking about bigger problems, like the devastating flashing question mark.
1999 – When I told my friends and family that I had just bought a new iMac, I got pretty much the same response: “Eww! A Mac!!! Gross.”
1999 – Apple wants us to think different, right? So, why do all of our Macs look the same?
1999 – Okay, so you’ve seen it, you’ve tried it, you like it. Now you want one.
1999 – Every computer has its flaws. The iMac is a computer, but, unlike other computers, you can very easily fix the iMac’s minor flaws. Oh, the iMac is also different than other computers, because it’s really cool looking. Today I’ll give you some easy tips to fix the problems you might have with your […]
1999 – When I first saw the original iMac, I knew that it would definitely be a trend setter, and definitely make a big iMpact on the world. I was right – the Bondi Blue Bombshell is definitely a trend setter, not only for other computers, but for many other things as well. Let’s review […]
1999 – I remember the day I first heard of the iMac. I thought to myself, “Hey, this new computer can’t be much cooler.” But I was wrong. At Macworld Expo in San Francisco, one of the coolest new computers was announced, the new iMac.
